New Eldar Aspect Warrior - Shadow Spectre

If you're thinking somehow that the new Dark Eldar delirium has caused you to have a complete psychotic break, that may very well be true, so it might be little comfort to tell you that what you're about to see is actually real...


Courtesy of Bell of Lost Souls, bringing you live updates from Games Day is the new Eldar Aspect Warrior, the Shadow Spectre. Think Fire Prism meets foot soldier. Word has it they have the ability to combine fire in a focussed beam, much like our beloved Fire Prism.

 


Sure it's not Christmas just yet, but it might as well be with everything lined up for the next few months. In fact, I'm going to put my feet up, have some stout and watch Home Alone 1 and 2 right now.

Later!

I love the model , but talk about weird ....

we have a fire prism already .

the 'new' eldar tanks just look like cut'n shunts of existing kits , hell all you need is a falcon mk ii kit a revenant pulsar and the front of a scorpion , bish bosh bash, tah daaah !!

They definitely are a weird concept, and I'm struggling to see how they can top Fire Dragons, or replace Fire Prisms. But all that aside, it's still something new, something Eldar ;)

well, if they seem to be on jump packs, so, if they can fit in fast attacks, it opens up the space to take the new Night Spinners instead, yet keep the power our the Prism.

Wow, what a great model. Thanks for the pic. It flies AND has a great big gun? Sweetness. Time to dust off the space elves.

I like the model and the concept, but does anyone know what the rules are? Also when can we get the models?

Sorrowshard said...

I had a couple of friends there, who spoke to the FW guys directly, apparently there is nothing in the way of rules thus far , obviously talking about the squad linking fire.

Apparently they were looking for an aspct that filled the long range fire support niche.

Im sure that was what dark reapers are 'supposed' to be for.

they just need EML's and melta missiles back again...

Fixing Dark Reapers is simple - give them the ability to go tank hunting.

Being only 'marine killers' and especially where cover saves and FnP are everywhere - this relegates our Dark Reapers to the shelf :(

Dark Reaper missile launcher:
Heavy 2 Blast S4 AP4
Heavy 1 S8 AP3.

Pick one of the above to use every turn. They can spam on infantry and wreck light-to-mid tanks. Fixed.

The fella previewed might be part of Imperial Armour 11 which involves the Eldars, Guard and Space Wolves. Thunderwolves from Forge World? Mmm...

Just think of them as Fire Dragons with longer range, more maneuverability, and more destructive potential
